Take Action Today for Our Families, Our Health

Today, over 100 APANO members are meeting elected officials at the State Capitol in Salem to advocate for Our Families, Our Health campaign priorities as they move through the Legislative Session. We are calling on APANO members statewide to join our efforts by sending a message today.

While Oregon celebrates expanded healthcare coverage, over 383,000 Oregonians remain uninsured. Many of the uninsured are immigrants and low-wage workers, including 19% of all Pacific Islanders. APANO is fighting for increased health access through our member-led, Our Families Our Health Campaign. Leading with the Oregon Health Equity Alliance and the COFA Alliance National Network, we have crafted bipartisan solutions to begin addressing coverage gaps through a Basic Health Plan Blueprint HB 4017 and COFA Healthcare Program HB 4071. These programs will expand coverage, increase benefits and significantly reduce costs for over 85,000 Oregonians. See the Mend The Gap report to learn more.

Both bills have moved out of the House Healthcare Committee and need to be funded through the Ways and Means Committee. They will then need to be passed by the full House and Senate. We have until March 5th.

Will you take 5 minutes to send a message of support for these bills? Click here to let your legislator know you believe in an Oregon where all families have the rights, resources and recognition to thrive!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
